Fished saturday by the 94 bridge and Catfish point. Ended up with four keepers (16-20inch)and one really nice crappie. Of course there were several smaller walleyes mixed in and the usual sheephead. Good luck to all

I was out on sunday for a couple of hours. got 2 nice pike, both 30 inches. seems like the high water is goofing up my pattern that has been working- we got a couple dozen smallies but not one walleye. might be the first time i have not gotten a walleye open water fishing the river. I can't wait till smallies open up- god they are fun to catch. man they tast good too! just kidding

Fished Saturday from the 94 bridge south to Afton state park. Caught at least 3 walleyes at each of our stops. They were in the trees normally on the shoreline on outside points everywhere we fished. Strangely enough, we found the most in the flooded city park just south of Afton boat docks. Used Hot-n-tot, crawdad color, dark jigs, blue over silver rapalas. Inside corners over rocks produced 2-3 lb Smallies using the same crank baits. We think that the 10+ walleyes and few sauger we caught (all released) were having a picnic since they were around the submerged picnic tables and barbecue grills!

Do they have the channel markers in yet around the Stillwater area? Haven't been able to make over there since the opener.

Has anyone been fishing around bayport, afton area. Went out last thursday for a couple hours and did o.k. Caught 15 walleye most small and 1 sheephead. Jig and fathead was working the best. Good Luck

We've been doing ok near the Kinni. Lots of short walleyes - few legals. Lots of big silver bass.

I brought my father down to the Croix both Sunday and Monday and we couldn't seem to keep the fish off the hooks. We even tried mixing up our presentations to try to fool the fish but they seemed bound and determined to join us in the boat. We only caught 8 legal fish (all still swimming) but it's fun just to have something pull on the line. We even had the pleasure of doing battle with a little Musky just south of the Hudson bridge. Darn thing broke me off right next to the boat so if anyone catches a little 'sky with a firetiger huske jerk you'll know who it belonged to. As for presentations we started off trolling cranks with leadcore in 20-27 feet of water just south of the Hudson bridge. After getting beat to death by the pleasure boaters we moved down to the rocks between Hudson and Afton. That was the only place we were able to keep the fish out of the boat. Off to Catfish bar pulling lindy's with fatties, rainbows, and crawlers. Went home when we ran out of bait (Scoop and a half of minners and a dozen crawlers). On Monday we hit the river around 6pm and had equal success between Catfish bar and the Washington county park. I was glad that my father was able to experience what a great fishery the Croix has turned into before heading back to Florida on Tuesday.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
